Healthy Coffee Shop Style Coffee ~ Recipe

I am a coffee addict. I drink coffee and well I have tried to stop or cut down but it is really hard to. When I had a really bad sinus infection I was able to cut down to one a day or every second day depending on how my stomach felt but other than that I have a hard time cutting it out. I have went from drinking my coffee with cream and sugar to cream and sweetener, then to just cream, then homogenized milk, then to just regular 2% milk. Now I have found something even better! I can officially say I can drink my coffee without milk. Here is a really great treat and a great way to get some healthy fats into your body. If you love coconut flavor you will want to give this one a whirl.

Coconut Coffee 

1 tsp coconut oil
1 cup of fresh brewed coffee of your choice
Pure flavor extract (optional)
Spice (Cinnamon, Apple pie spice or Pumpkin pie spice etc - optional)
1-2 tsp of your favorite protein powder ( I use Garden of Life or Renew Life Canada FitSmart ) This is something I just tried after writing this post so I have added it in. So tasty and a great way to get a bit more protein in.


Blender - I like my single serve Cuisinart blender


Brew coffee, pour desired amount into your blender leaving space at the top for steam.

Add a teaspoon on coconut oil, extract & protein powder (both of these last two ingredients are optional).
Blend on low for 20-30 seconds. If you are using a regular blender be careful for steam escaping from the top. Maybe put a tea towel over it. I use my single serve blender and there isn't a vent. Just need to be careful when taking the top off.

Pour into coffee mug and sprinkle spice on top (optional).
